Exercise “vacation distancing.” Get away in our beautifully-renovated 100 year old cabin. Check out the pics! Trails at Abrams Creek Campground in the GSMNP are only 1 mile away. “Tail of the Dragon” is 9 miles away. If you haul a trailer, the yard has loop, so no backing!

Le logement
Hosts Ben & Jeanne invite you to their beautifully renovated 100 year-old cabin in the Smokies. The cabin offers outdoor recreation at the Abrams Creek Campground hiking entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park (1 mile away), Chilhowee Lake, and is located near the entrance to the #1 bike & sports-car destination in the US - the "Tail of the Dragon."

Need a breather from the hectic pace of life? Spend some down-time out roasting S'Mores under the stars. Or spend a little time challenging each other to a a card game or an old-fashioned evening of board games. Don't miss the chance to sip hot chocolate or coffee on the porch just moments from the Smoky Mountain National Park.

If you want the hustle of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge or get worried if you're not around the corner from a Walmart, this isn't the place for you. But, if you long for peace, quiet, nature, and the outdoors, you're in the right place!

You will have exclusive use of the entire guest cabin as we only rent to one person/group at a time. The cabin sleeps up to 7 people. The master bedroom sleeps 2 in a queen bed. The second bedroom sleeps 1 in a twin bed. The bunk room offers 4 twin beds. There is a comfortable sofa in the main room if you need to squeeze in one extra person. The cabin features 2 full baths, a well-furnished kitchen (full size appliances, all cookware, dishes, etc).

We happily welcome well-behaved pets. A nominal one-time $20 pet fee (not per day, just once for the entire stay) for indoor pets may be paid upon your arrival. ***Note that the national park does not permit pets on park trails. We also ask that you not leave a pet locked in a room while you are away as this is a source of great anxiety for a pet. In other properties we host & co-host, we have had one pet shred carpet and gouge the bedroom door, a couple gouge doors and walls trying to get out, and another shred a brand new expensive quilt. If you need to leave your pet while you’re out, a crate may provide a safer environment for them.

We ask that you include children over age 3 in your reservation guest count as we prepare beds, linens, and plan cleaning time at the end of your stay based upon the total number of guests including children. There is no charge for babies sleeping in a crib. Just let us know so we can put up the portable crib.

ARE WE ALREADY BOOKED FOR YOUR VACATION DATES?
Not to worry--we have 3 more cabins :)

“Away from It All in the Smokies” features an extraordinary view of the mountains and Chilhowee lake nine miles away.

“On Gold Pond” is several miles away on top of Chilhowee Mtn. It is tucked away on a lovely pond.

“2BR/2Ba with Beautiful View” is located in Townsend, near restaurants, grocery store and one of the primary entrances to the National Park. It is our closest cabin to Cades Cove. Michael & Sherri own the cabin and we co-host it.

Accès des voyageurs
Amenities include Direct TV, high-speed wi-fi, room for parking several cars and a trailer, several outdoor games, Great Smoky Mountain hiking trails at Abrams Creek Campground, and an outdoor firepit complete with marshmallow roasting sticks. We are working toward providing enclosed and locked storage for motorcycles or bicycles but do not have that yet.

We stock the cabin with many cooking essentials such as seasonings, oil, sugar, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, coffee creamer, and a selection of condiments such as mayo and ketchup.

The nearest grocery stores are over Chilhowee Mountain in Maryville (13 miles). The nearest store of any kind is a Dollar General (about 8 miles). Unless you plan to spend time in Maryville, pick up groceries before you arrive.

Maryville has two Superwalmarts, a huge Kroger Marketplace, numerous other large grocery stores, and numerous restaurants. Townsend (25 min) has one IGA grocery market, a Dollar General, and 8-10 restaurants.

You are the ONLY guests in the cabin. The only home you can see from the cabin is about 75 yards away across the stream.

Check in after 4 pm
Check out by 10 am
NO EARLY CHECK IN OR LATE CHECK OUT

Autres points à prendre en note
CALENDAR:
Our calendar is always 100% current so you can be assured that if a date is open, it IS available.

We believe in honest pricing so we offer reasonable rates year round, even at premium times. In fairness to all guests, we do not offer discounts to specific groups (such as AAA, AARP, military, etc).

If you have a specific date in mind, we encourage you to book as soon as you finalize your plans. The other two cabins we manage are booked 85% - 90% of nights. Virtually all weekends get booked. We suggest you reserve weekends and holidays well in advance. With the Airbnb reservation system, an "inquiry" does NOT hold the requested dates.

Guests are welcome to check in anytime after 4 pm. Check out is 10 am.
NO EARLY CHECK IN OR LATE CHECK OUT

———————
POLICIES
———————

Some of these policies outline how we enforce the Airbnb Guest Standards. Policies may be mediated or enforced by Airbnb or law enforcement. When reasonably possible, we will seek to address policy concerns with you directly before asking Airbnb or law enforcement to intervene.

1. EXCESSIVE NOISE
• Be considerate of neighboring property owners
• Minimize outdoor noise after 10 pm

2. MAJOR CLEANLINESS CONCERNS
• Typically, preparing the cabin for the next guest requires 2-4 hrs
• Guests who leave the cabin in particularly unacceptable condition may be charged an additional cleaning fee of $50/hr plus cleaner’s mileage
• Whether we can identify the smell or not, strong odors will incur the additional cleaning fees noted above
• Guests are responsible for the cost of any rental or purchase of cleaning equipment & supplies required to remedy major cleanliness concerns.
• Guests are responsible for replacement/cleaning costs of damaged items
• Should guests leave such a mess or damage that we are unable to accommodate our next booking, other fees (beyond cleaning fee noted above) include reimbursement for any cancellation or rebooking fees we might incur due to being unable to accommodate the next guest(s), the cost to place the next guest(s) in another location, reimbursement for other costs we might incur for the closure, plus up to $200/day per 24 hrs of closure. Any insurance payment/reimbursement we receive related to the mess/damage will not reduce the amount owed.

3. UNAUTHORIZED GUESTS
• Anyone not counted/included on a reservation is an Unauthorized Guest. Make sure to include children in the reservation.
• Guests who make a reservation must provide Airbnb a government ID and be one of the guests staying (no third-party bookings). We may request to see your ID.
• Request changes to the number of guests up until the day before your stay. Fees will be adjusted up or down at our standard extra person rates.
• You may ask to add extra people to your reservation at the last minute, but approval is at our discretion. If we agree, the last minute guests are double the nightly extra person fee for the entire length of the reservation, regardless of how long the person stays. These extra guests are Unauthorized until your reservation is updated and paid on Airbnb.
• If you bring more people than our stated maximum occupancy, each extra person is $100 per person, per night, for the entire length of the booking, regardless of how long the person remains on our property. These guests remain Unauthorized Guests and we can ask Airbnb to charge you for these guests even if you don’t agree to the charges.

If you bring Unauthorized Guests, everyone may be asked to vacate the property immediately, or at any time during a reservation, with no refunds for any remaining nights.

(Should you wish to have day guests, please discuss that with us.)

4. UNAUTHORIZED PARKING
• Park vehicles between the cabin and the old barns when possible
• In most cases, it’s OK to park elsewhere on our land
• If you have a trailer, you can circle behind the small barns and pull out onto the main road just before the barbed wire fence

5. UNAUTHORIZED SMOKING
• No smoking or vaping indoors or on the cabin deck due to fire safety in the historic cabin
• No smoking or vaping in or near one of the old barns due to fire safety
• If you smoke or vape outdoors, close nearby doors and windows to avoid smoke smells inside the cabin.
• Extinguish and dispose of butts properly
• No marijuana usage (illegal in TN)
• Many guests are sensitive to smoke. Take care to avoid bringing in smoky smells on clothing or personal items
• Smoky or inhaled substance smells will incur a minimum $250 fee, in addition to cleaning or closure fees

6. LATE CHECK OUTS
• Check out is 10 am SHARP!
• Late fees are $100 per 30 minutes past 10 am
• Our cleaners live as much as an hour away. We cannot call last minute to tell them a guest is running late. They have already left home, arranged for childcare and are awaiting your prompt departure. We have 6 hours to clean multiple cabins scattered over 30 miles. A guest who checks out late is a huge problem for us. We compensate our cleaners when they are sitting waiting on your departure.

7. EARLY OR LATE CHECK IN
• Check in is anytime after 4 pm
• Later is no problem, just let us know so we won’t worry too much
• NO early check in. Guests who arrive prior to 4 pm will be asked to wait until we are finished cleaning.

8. UNAUTHORIZED PETS
• We are pet-friendly
• Pet fee is $20 (one time fee)
• No specific limits on size or breeds, but pet owners are responsible for the actions of their pets and for any damage that their pet may cause
• Pets may not be enclosed in a bedroom or behind a door
• Crate pets if you are away
• Remember that the Great Smoky Mountain National Park does not permit pets on trails

9. PARTIES
• No unruly parties
• Guests asked to vacate immediately
• No refund for remaining stay
• Cleaning/closure fees apply
• Legal/police intervention may occur

10. ILLEGAL SUBSTANCE USAGE
• No smoking/vaping under age 18
• No underage drinking (under 21)
• No use of any substance prohibited by law in TN (marijuana is illegal here)
* No use on our property, on adjacent/nearby public or private properties, or on shared areas such as the road leading to our property. Guests will be asked to leave immediately with no refund, even if we have not personally observed usage. Reports of usage by neighbors, security team members, or law enforcement will incur the same action and penalties as if we had personally observed usage.
Exercise “vacation distancing.” Get away in our beautifully-renovated 100 year old cabin. Check out the pics! Trails at Abrams Creek Campground in the GSMNP are only 1 mile away. “Tail of the Dragon” is 9 miles away. If you haul a trailer, the yard has loop, so no backing!

Tallassee, Tennessee, États-Unis

Happy Valley, as the name implies, is a narrow valley between Maryville and the National Park. It is an eclectic mix of native Tennesseans, Cades Cove transplants, and people from all over. As the crow flies Happy Bear is a few hundred yards from the national park boundary. The most secluded and least used entrance to the park is at Abrams Creek which is one mile away. We have never seen more than 10 cars in the parking area. You can drive to an awesome view at Look Rock Tower on Foothills Parkway in ten minutes. The tower is accessed via a paved and fairly easy half-mile trail. From the tower you can see about half of the Smokies, Maryville, and the Cumberland Plateau. Visibility ranges from 30 to 100 miles. Like Abrams Creek, it is never crowded.

Distance to other nearby attractions:
US 129 / "Tail of the Dragon" - 15 minutes on the TN side
Foothills Parkway (scenic highway) - 10 minutes
Fishing/Kayaking on Tellico Lake - three boat launches/piers 10-15 minutes away
Cades Cove - 50 minutes
Townsend - 30 minutes
Gatlinburg - 1 hr
Pigeon Forge - 50 minutes
Maryville - 20 minutes
Knoxville airport - 30 minutes
Knoxville city - 45 minutes
UT Knoxville - 40 minutes
